I am a non-native speaker.
I would like to express that something happened two years after a character has formed a relationship with a loved one. This is what I wrote:
Two years after I hooked up with Sarah, we went to Paris.
I was suddenly unsure about the phrasing, though, and wonder if this would imply a superficial, mere sexual relationship rather than a love affair.
If so, are there more appropriate alternatives to describe such a relationship?
